Thanks Rick....

8 posts in this topic

I just wanna say a big thank you to Rick the wonderful administrator of this site, this is the first quality site I've been on that I can get questions answered. The MN DNR is the only other page that I've found that's decent, but it still gets smoked by this site.... so thanks Rick... I'd be way more lost without this site.

I too agree that this site is wonderful!

Rick has worked hard over the past couple years, ensuring fishingminnesota.com is a friendly and educational place to visit.

Occasionally, people forget how to handle themselves on the site, but more often than not, it remains clean, informative and fun!!

I too thank Rick!

Keep the rods bendin'!!!

Thanks guys. I appreciate the kudos.

Unfortunately I do not get much time to fish with all the work that goes on behind the scenes.

As a matter of fact, I haven't been able to visit the forums since Tuesday because of the work load.

The folks to really thank are our most excellant Forum Guide Pros. They maintain the quality of their forums, answer questions and try to keep things fun.

The following truly go above and beyond to keep Fishing Minnesota moving ahead:
A big thanks goes to-Toad, GullGuide, Jim W, and Pwaldow.

Now don't think the other Forum Guide Pros don't work hard to help everyone, because they do. It's just that the Forum Guide Pros above have taken on a lot of extra work behind the scenes to help everyone have a better experience.

If you check out the Events where anglers actually get together these guys are instrumental in putting it together. Not to mention also keeping the forums interesting, fun, and friendly.

Participate in an event and you will come away with a new appreciation of what fishing fun is.

Trout Day is coming up soon. E-mail Jim W if you would like to participate or work with him. You'll enjoy the day and if you want to help him, the rewards could be more than you bargained for.

Thanks again for the Kudos.

It's nice to read them when I'm sitting here just plugging away, while you guys are fishing smile.gif

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.

      Always worth it to go fishing.  That time of year your best bet from what your schedule sounds like would be to put crank baits on and trolling the edges and tops of the reefs or do some slip bobber fishing down on that end of the lake.  Huddles Reef, Variety, Olsons, etc. would all be places to start, but the crankbait bite can be good.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks
